My "Burnt up pile of scrap" is really starting to come together. I'm am dead set on a gauge cluster with a tach. Do I spring for a HP2MM one for $943.70 or grab a r1200s tach off ebay for shorty money. Looks just as good with the white gauge faces just no logo on the faces. Any input would be good with me fellas.

HOO-RAH

Yep!!! I 'm going with a brandy new gauge cluster from the HP2MM.

I got the c/f goodies from the guy who makes em for holan.pl He put three sets on ebay. one set was no reserve and I scored all 6 pieces for $330.00! What a DEAL!

I started drawing my super-duper custom auxillary luggage rack that will be bolt-on utillizing the passenger pegs and the Touratech rear rack. It will be all aluminum including the round stock to keep the weight down.

Anyone got the skinny on the 1.5# lithium battery that's the size of a rubiks cube???

I wanna get one. Nice n' lite

Pissed I hate the mail sometimes......

Got my black anodised billet aluminium fuel cap in the mail today. It's going right back to the shipper. It has a nick in it and the evidence is on the envelope. M.....!@^$^&$...ers!

I hate UPS, USPS! Fed-ex is the best. Every other shipper blows me bag!

Just installed:

pro brake carbon fx stainless steel braided brake and clutch line

both handle bar fluid containers and bleeding lines with dot 4 and magura mineral oil (clutch)

both BMW roundels and plackards on the side panels (still waiting for the roundel blinkers from DE)

black anodised billet aluminum fuel tank cover/lid

almost done with:

a very cool and totally functional luggage rack and pannier mounting system. made it out of 1/8 inch sheet aluminum and 1/2 inch solid aluminum rod. I had to buy a metal brake and tubing bender but worth it. Fabrication is almost complete, left side mounts and then off to welder/powdercoater. Looks like I bought it from Touratech (matches the little one they sell for hp2e only larger)

I have fab pictures if someone wants to post em here for me.

cheers,

Yep, let's see the pics. I've been told bending aluminium is tricky as it can weaken at the bend so let's see how you did it.
